The following announcement was provided by Arsenal Yards:
With fall in full swing, Arsenal Yards invites residents, workers, and visitors to (pumpkin) spice up their fall days through a variety of autumnal events happening throughout the vibrant new neighborhood this October. Guests and residents of Arsenal Yards are invited to enjoy outdoor live music performances, pumpkin carving, games and more at Fall Falladays!
The festivities will kick off on Thursday, October 14th at Arsenal Yards’ Fall Falladays Festival, a can’t miss event of fall fun including live music, festive games, harvest treats and complimentary professional family photos with a surprise backdrop, sponsored by Blvd & Bond. For those who are 21+, beer and wine will be available for purchase. The festival will offer two sessions; one from 4:00-6:00 p.m. and the second from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Tickets are $10 per person (children ages 5 and under are free) with all proceeds benefitting the Watertown Food Pantry. Tickets must be reserved online in advanced here.
“Fall is such a fun and beautiful time in New England,” said Jessica Reed, Marketing Director at Arsenal Yards, “We are thrilled to invite our residents at Blvd & Bond, guests and the entire Watertown community to join us out onto the River Green for our second-annual Fall Falladays celebration to enjoy some take-out from our many new restaurants, do some shopping and partake in everything that Arsenal Yards has to offer during the autumn season.”
Throughout the month of October, visitors can guess the weight of a giant pumpkin and enter a pumpkin carving contest for the chance to win amazing prizes (valuing up to $500). All proceeds from the Pumpkin Carving Contest benefit the Watertown Boys & Girls Club. Sign up required here. Guests can also check out Arsenal Yards’ outdoor eating area while enjoying takeout from go-to favorites like Sweetgreen, Garbanzo, and more. Fall décor, including giant haybales, make the perfect backdrop for autumn Instagram photos. Attendees can tag @ArsenalYards for a chance to be featured on their social channels.
